    As youll recall I entered my ex-Subtek Albacore in last years competition. Here is the link to it:http://forum.sub-driver.com/showthread.php?824-Albacore

    Just ordered the Caswell Plug N' Plate nickel plating system to nickel plate the white metal props that Dave sent me for this thing. I dont want these props to bend when we push the throttles all the way forward to chase down that Rogue Alpha just detected in US waters. Im going to trade paint with Ivan as soon as I catch em.

          Happy to mate, its a great little boat you have there. I love the video too.
          I really enjoy the photos you dig up on 1/1 scale subjects, do you have a similar photo file on Albacore?

                  In the various pictures of the control room , notice how over the years that the controls and guages have changed.

                        Here are some Albacore models from various sources that I have collected in picture form. I hope that there owners dont object as I dont know whos all they are. One of them is mine and a couple of the shots come from D&E Miniatures. The rest I believe are Canadian.

                          A couple more. I tell you what. I really like this paint job, although I dont believe it to be accurate for the X-Tail version. Of course I really like my bow plane instalation, which also isnt going to be accurate with a Duo-prop X-Tail either. What to do........What to do??? Are we to count rivets or make what mods that we want? Faithful modeling dedication to scale or some comprimises? I know, well do it semi scale and combine the best features available and ask forgivness later. Mumms the word!.

                            If youve ever seen some of the video of my 52" Rick Teskey Seaview youll note that its easy to see in less that ideal water conditions because of its light grey paint job. Its a real confidence builder when you always know where your sub is. This two toned paint job would be highly visible and thats a plus. Im considering it.
